welcome back commanders in a new update !! , this time i'll speak shortly about how Nod mechanics within vortex will work , as you guys know vortex represents each faction as one faction only with no real sub-factions however as you play you will get more specialized with more sub-factions technology , speaking about Nod each sub-faction will be represented but two tires upgrades representing The Black Hand and Marked of Kane as you can see below :-

The Black Fire Essence of Light

every one of them as demonstrated above is divided in game to two tires or levels , in each tire u can chose only one of these sides , so in short as you advance you can turn your base into either pure MoK or BH or mixed technology depending on your game play style , generally....

The Black Fire will enhance your infantry and flame units while The Essence of Light will provide more air support and enhance your laser and Tiberium weaponry technology beside that they are vital to provide more powerful units and building as the coming tech trees show :-

Buildings Tech Tree :

The first Tire upgrade can be granted from the MCV while the second one is granted from either one of two high tech labs , the tacitus library for MoK and the Blach Hand Battle Lab for BH and once u have chosen one there is no turning back so decide wisely , open the images in new taps to see them bigger

Infantry Tech Tree :

Vehicles Tech Tree :

Aircraft Tech Tree :

Navy Tech Tree :

and before i forget !! , The Redeemer , Megalith and The Kraken also require level 5 general promotion to be unleashed

coming to the Mod status , we were recently working full time on fixing and enhancing nod making ready for the alpha release and here is a slight taste of these improvements
BH Rocket Silo revambed
totally remodeled ,uv mapped and texture to fit more in nod style rather than the old ugly one

MoK mobile stealth generator new model

and i believe u have seen the new Nod CommandBar before :)

on a side note , the empire of shifting sands got some new toys to play with

Maats Wing air fighter

The AirField

at the end all i can say we still working on the mod to the end and be patient for the release it needs a lot of work to be done and actuality we are only two guys who are working on this behemoth mod and above all of that uni starts next day from the time im writing this , so we all want to say thank you for sticking with us all this time , the mod wouldn't have survived except with this passion to it , and dont worry the alpha is coming closer and closer as time goes but its coming slowly though due to uni stuff

any way the mod need any help it can get to post its speed up , so if you are interested and have a talent you want to share with community through rhis mod then you are welcomed as one of us :)
currently we have these places free and need to be filled
- mappers
- sound artists
- professional coders "a history of working with other mods is required "
- 2D artists
- Digital Paints artists
- or any other talent you think it can help the mod
in this case you can Pm me with a sample of your work

flashknight do you plan to release it after some factions are ready or do you want to first make all faction playable then release it?
i hope the first option...

the plan is to release mainly GDI and Nod (+/-) the Egyptian empire according to our free time and there is a possibility that Crawler system may be delayed till the second alpha !!!
as a status report the tw factions are almost done to meet my alpha version standards except few units that can wait for the second release what needs to be done mainly are some code cleaning , set the right price,weapon and armor values tags and the units short comments that appear when hovering above their icons ,that if someone feels to have time to write them then it will be of a great help to me :P

@flashknight33.... one question when is this mod available for download? it would be a one hell of a mod i definitely want to play. i mean though i not like EA very much i already love CnC franchise since the first from westwood (except cnc4... terrible) now this Damn mod want to include all the faction... damn!, the design also.. somewhat nostalgic for me. when it is ready? i too need holiday time to download and play :p

and hope you succeed in your medical career

Why is this mod for this game instead of one of the C&C3s, since they have a less buggy system than the Generals games? -just asking.

TW is in fact better in graphics but I think gen zh is better in some other aspects like extended command bar where u can have 14 buttons compared to that of TW with only 9 and actually even 14 buttons are not always enough for me and had to extend it even more :/

TW has a scroll bar at unit list, so you can put as many units as you want, just saying.
